Default Audio install, all at home Comments/Feedback/Ideas

I have a 08 Reno.

My installed audio Set-up right now: Pioneer Premier DEH-P510UB
DEH-P510UB - Premier™ CD Receiver with Full Motion OEL Display and USB Direct Control of iPod, Bluetooth Ready | Pioneer Electronics USA

I have 2 sets of component door speakers: JL 525-cwi and a JL G4500 amplifier.

I also have 2 subwoofers: Pioneer TS-W309D4 and a Pioneer GM-D8500M amplifier.
TS-W309 30cm 4? Single Voice Coil Subwoofer for Enclosed and Free-Air use (1000W) - Pioneer Speakers & Subwoofers
GM-D8500M Mono Channel Class-D Car Amplifier (1200W) - Pioneer Amplifier

I did check out books from the library, so that I could read about how to set-up and install the system. Anyone have any comments? I don't know if I should by another G4500 amplifier, one for each subwoofer. I am also hoping to build 2 boxes myself, one for each side of the trunk.
There is a picture of my hope for the final install in my profile, with only 1 amp, I will use 2 if necessary.

that sounds like a nice setup man.

but with those component door speakers won't you have to sacrifice the tweeter being relocated instead of in the door handle as the stock ones are?

you'll have to drill new holes for them in your door trim bc they more than likely aren't the same size as the factory tweeters.

i like that idea about custom sub boxes sitting off to the sides in the trunk. it will look clean and save space compared to a bulky rectangle sub box.

although you might be changing the brake/turn light bulbs often unless you have LED's bc the subs will rattle the filament loose in those stock bulbs & the next thing u know the fuzz is in ur rearview...

I'm not sure about the tweeters... I thought they were the same size as stock, although they may not be. Thanks for the idea about the bulbs, if I ever get to making these sub enclosures and setting up everything, I may decide to go LED. Does anyone have any write ups about speaker or amp installs? It would be nice to have some guidance

I know its been awhile since my starting post, but I wanted to update on the audio. I've got my power wire, 1 remote wire, a bass control wire, and RCA cables to the trunk (I have one four channel amp for the door speakers and a mono amp for the subs). I am hesitant about running any speaker wire from the amp to the crossover(s) because I'm not completely sure how to connect it all, what stock wires to cut and where to run the wiring. Any help is appreciated.

I'm sorry to have to say it, but I think it may be time to call a pro.

The owner's manual (which I have downloaded & looked at), documents every thing you need to know about connecting the speakers to the crossover and the crossover to the amp - from a connection stand point it IS as simple as following those instructions.

I also don't understand why you're even considering cutting stock wires - I can't think which stock wiring you could be reusing - there's no way the stock speaker wires can be used (not unless you somehow managed to get the amp up behind the dash).

Same goes for the "where to run the wires" question - if you're mounting the speakers in the doors, the wires have to be run through the existing "channel" across the door jamb, and from there to where ever you did mount the amp - there are not exactly a lot of choices.
